As we move closer to digital utopia, we shouldn’t forget our roots, our natural world. We want to preserve our earth habitat, but at the same time most of us have no real clue how we’re affecting it. As Artists and Scientists side by side, we can learn techniques and concepts of creative inquiry. We will hear Nature’s special language and translate it into environmental responsibilities. We are joining forces because we are collectively aware of the importance of eco-consciousness from a global to a personal level. We would like to employ a spiritual relationship with the riverscape, and encourage activism by creating artworks that depict our interventionist feelings, and social conscience.
Eureka Springs, Arkansas, often referred to as the Heart of the Ozarks or The City that Water Built was founded because of its healing springs. In 1981 an extensive study was conducted on the 66 Springs within the city limits. The springs were found to be contaminated from leaking sewer lines and septic tanks. Since that time many of the sewer lines in Eureka Springs were replaced and septic tanks eliminated.

The public works department tested the Springs on a regular basis and discovered there was very little flow in the springs.

Throughout the river's more recent history it's been inhabited by man. First by the Connestee Indians whose mounds have been found to date back to 200-500 AD. Then, beginning around 1000AD, by the Cherokee Indians. Most recently in the 18th century the Europeans settled in its floodplain. Since that time the inhabitation on the floodplain of the river has grown tremendously, and with that growth came pollution, which in 1955 had become so bad that Wilma Dykeman, the author of The French Broad, described it as "Too thick to drink and too thin to plow." However, since the passage of the Clean Water Act in 1972, which put heavy limits on the pollution that industry discharges int ... Click here for more details
